The booths are small, faux leather and the wear and tear is apparent. (My side of the booth had some holes and the padding was sorely missing). But what Norm's has got in abundance is old time diner... More

Great food and price cannot be beat. Sweet potato fries are awesome. Definitely will make this a "must go" location when in town.

Thought I would try again. Haven't been here in years. Will not go back for years to come if ever. Nasty boxed/canned food. Horrible service.

Reasonable prices, good food, friendly staff, diner style. Waitress was very friendly and joked with members of our group. Small parking lot, but additional parking available along the street.

Amazing diner with great food! Does not disappoint. Military friendly. The prices are fair, and compare to waffle house.

We were on our way to Mystic And wanted to stop for breakfast. Looked for a dinner nearby and found Norms, we sat right away with no waiting which was great because we were traveling with a small child. We were waited quickly and the food was fast and hot and very good. Well worth the money and we would... More

Yes; a real old fashioned diner in the best sense. Good food, generous portions, friendly service. My minestrone and my wife's cheeseburger were both excellent and very fairly priced.
